Salted Caramel Sauce

Store-bought caramel sauces are oftentimes very sweet and contain loads of stabilizers. This homemade version is quick to make and has a nice salty note. Caramel sauce is essential for sundae-lovers, but it can also be used in cheesecakes, in ice cream, or whisked into hot chocolate.

Game plan: This sauce will last up to 7 days covered and refrigerated.

Instructions

  2. 2Immediately add butter and stir to incorporate. Remove from heat, add cream and salt, and mix well. Serve immediately or let cool to room temperature, cover, and refrigerate.
